For the many blessings which members of my family and I have received through the study of Christian Science, I should like to express my sincere and heartfelt gratitude. I am a pupil in a Christian Science Sunday School, and I should like, at this time, to tell of a healing which I experienced soon after applying for membership in The Mother Church.

I was on my way home from school when I tripped over a piece of broken cement and fell, hitting my ankle sharply against a nearby parking meter. Before getting to my feet, I declared these truths from Science and Health by Mrs. Eddy (p. 2): "God is Love," and (p. 463), "A spiritual idea has not a single element of error, and this truth removes properly whatever is offensive."

However, I seemed unable to keep from limping. I called a Christian Science practitioner, who immediately took up prayerful work for me. She gave me a citation to study and remember (ibid., p. 424), "Accidents are unknown to God, or immortal Mind, and we must leave the mortal basis of belief and unite with the one Mind, in order to change the notion of chance to the proper sense of God's unerring direction and thus bring out harmony."
